Daily physical education for all students l.jpg

Daily Physical Education for All Students?

Only:

  • 8% of elementary schools (excluding kindergarten)

  • 6% of middle/junior high schools

  • 6% of senior high schools

    Provide daily PE (or its equivalent*) for entire school year for students.

Disclaimer l.jpg

Disclaimer

All physical education is not good physical education.


Quality physical education provides l.jpg

Quality Physical Education Provides:

  • Opportunity to learn

    • Qualified teachers

    • Adequate time

  • Meaningful content

    • National/state standards for physical education

  • Appropriate instruction

  • Formative and summative assessment


Examples of quality physical education l.jpg

Examples of Quality Physical Education

  • All children being active

    • Stations

    • Small group games

    • Technology (pedometers, heart rate monitors)

  • Choices

    • Variety of activities

    • Various practice levels

    • Personal goals

  • Cooperative Activities

Physical activity vs physical education l.jpg

Physical Activity vs. Physical Education

  • Physical activity = behavior

  • Physical education = curricular area that teaches about physical activity. This helps students attain the knowledge and skills of physical education and does not just provide an opportunity for students to be physically active.


Physical activity vs physical education34 l.jpg

Physical Activity vs. Physical Education

  • Students arephysically active in physical education, but students are not(comprehensively) physically educated at recess or through sport participation.

    Can’t physical education be provided as part of recess? No.


What are the biggest barriers for schools to provide quality physical education to all students l.jpg

What are the biggest barriers for schools to provide quality physical education to all students?

Unintended consequences of accountability and No Child Left Behind (NCLB).


Funding and time l.jpg

FUNDING and TIME

  • Funding for:

    • HL Coordinators

    • Hiring Certified Physical Education Teachers

    • Facilities

    • Teacher Training

  • Time restrictions - pressures from

    • NCLB

    • Non-funded Mandates


Unintended consequence of nclb in north carolina l.jpg

Unintended Consequence of NCLB in North Carolina

  • Coaching positions at risk to keep other and “highly qualified teachers.”

  • Physical Education is decreasing in time and increasing in class size.


Implications of nclb on physical education l.jpg

Implications of NCLB on Physical Education

  • NCLB does not list physical education as core, even though it is considered a core academic subject in North Carolina.

  • Physical Educators are teaching reading.

  • General Public does not understand the difference in PE and PA


Implications of nclb on physical education39 l.jpg

Implications of NCLB on Physical Education

  • Carol M. White Physical Education for Progress (PEP) is listed in NCLB for LEAs or community based organizations to provide leadership towards improving Physical Education and Nutrition.

  • Not every district has someone to apply for the LEA grant.

  • Physical activity is being substituted for physical education and what we teach for lifelong learners.


How much physical activity education do children and adolescents need l.jpg

How much physical activity/education do children and adolescents need?

Why do schools have to take responsibility for the physical activity of students l.jpg

Why do schools have to take responsibility for the physical activity of students?


Why schools l.jpg

Why Schools?

  • School physical education programs are the one place that:

    • All children can participate in regular physical activity.

    • All children can become physically educated for a lifetime of physical activity.


Why schools48 l.jpg

Why Schools?

  • School physical education programs are the one place that:

    • We teach mind and body for physical, social, and emotional

    • Have opportunity with professional to develop skills and learn appropriate information.


Why schools49 l.jpg

Why Schools?

Physical Activity:

  • Balances Serotonin

    • too much - depressed

    • not enough - chaos

      Exercise and diet are a natural way to balance serotonin.


Why schools50 l.jpg

Why Schools?

Physical Activity:

  • Elevates endorphins

    • The feel good chemical

      Exercise and diet are a natural way to elevate endorphins.


Why schools51 l.jpg

Why Schools?

Physical Activity:

  • Elevates cortosol - Stress control

    • When stress takes over it blocks learning to the Brain stem - the highway to the brain.

    • Cortosol helps control the stress

      Exercise and diet are a natural way to elevate cortosol.


Why schools52 l.jpg

Why Schools?

Physical Education:

  • Cross midline -

    • Increase blood flow to brain

    • Hand- eye coordination -

    • Increase brain alertness

      Juggling, throwing, skipping is a great way to cross the midline.


Why schools53 l.jpg

Why Schools?

Physical Education:

  • Lateral movements -

    • Assists in accurately reproducing shapes

    • Assists in accurately reproducing numbers

    • Assists in accurately reproducing letters

      Team and dual sports are a great way to practice lateral movements.


Slide54 l.jpg

What is the most important thing that this committee can do to increase physical activity among children and adolescents?


Develop a long term and short term plan l.jpg

Develop a long term and short term plan.


Questions to consider for indicating quality physical education classes l.jpg

Questions to Consider for Indicating Quality Physical Education Classes

  • Is the teacher - student ratio consistent in Physical Education with those of other classrooms?

  • Are facilities adequate to implement the physical education curriculum?

  • Is physical education taught by a certified physical education teacher?


Questions to consider l.jpg

Questions to Consider

  • Is recess in addition to physical education class time and not be a substitute for physical education?


Questions to consider58 l.jpg

Questions to Consider

  • Do school staff withhold participation in recess from students or cancel recess to make up for missed instructional time?

  • Does school staff use physical activity as punishment?

  • Do school provide opportunities for some type of physical activity for students in grades seven through twelve apart from physical education class and organized sports?


Questions to consider59 l.jpg

Questions to Consider

  • Are schools provided with proper equipment and a safe area designated for supervised recess, physical activity and physical education or ALL students?

  • Are teachers licensed in PE currently maintaining their licenses by taking appropriate renewal credits?


Physical education important at the core60 l.jpg

Physical Education: Important at the Core

  • Long Term: Develop a Comprehensive Statewide Plan to include:

    • Facilities

    • Resources

    • Personnel

    • Appropriate standards

    • Guidelines and

    • Funding

      That could be incrementally and sequentially implemented to provide Quality Physical education for all NC Students.


Comprehensive statewide plan l.jpg

Comprehensive Statewide Plan

  • To possibly include:

    • Revive the General Statute for funding Healthful Living Coordinators in each LEA to oversee HAC policy and local/state obesity issues.

    • Screen BMI for accountability.


Comprehensive statewide plan62 l.jpg

Comprehensive Statewide Plan

  • To possibly include:

    • End of Grade Testing or other evaluation such as physical fitness testing be reported to SBE or Governors office.

    • Incorporate the Healthy Active children policy into the Legislative School Improvement plans so that health will be a concern in schools.
